Goderich and Exeter Railway train 431 rumbles through downtown Brampton, with its then-regular rag-tag lashup of second- and third-hand EMD 4-motors in distinctly non-matching paint schemes, about to pound the interlocking diamond a few metres from where the photographer is standing. Today's motley crew consists of GEXR 3835 (GP38), GEXR 3856 (GP38), RLK 4096 (GP40) and GEXR 4046 (GP40), working a good-sized freight courtesy of CN back to home trackage. Today's return train has also "beat the rush", and as a result the CN RTC won't have to juggle a 431 amidst the GO trains beginning half and hour later at 5pm.GEXR 431 (from) along with 432 (to) is the daily "Mac-and-Back" train that runs over part of CN's Halton Subdivision to CN's MacMillan Yard for interchanging traffic, resuming regular routing on GEXR's Guelph Sub at Silver (control point west of Georgetown).
